Spellbinder Show and Tell Day 2 and 3

Hello Everyone,

Back again with some more pictures of the Spellbinder samples.  I have had such a problem trying to get onto the internet again at the studio and apologise for the delay - I am home tonight and so for the rest of the week there wont be any problem!

The shows have been tremendous and I have had some fantastic emails and pictures so thank you to everyone that has taken the time to send these in.
I am just hanging around waiting to do my last hour!!!!!! of the 18 since Monday.  Last night was tough as the air conditioning in the Ideal World studio broke down and it was like a sauna! My only thought was I do hope this sweats some unwanted areas of fat off!!! lol (by the way it didn't if you are wondering!)

Anyway down to business .....................................

This is a couple of the Die-di-lites - the Bonsai Tree and one of the Ornamental Tags (sorry in the green room so not sure about the number)
I have made a traditional Oriental Design and used the top of the tree to stencil through and make a background. I used Black Soot Distress Ink. Hope you like the idea.

This is using another ornamental tag and it is a favourite of mine. It has been stencilled with distress ink and used to pop the sentiment on.
I have also used the Locking Loops to sit this tag on.  You will also see some embossing on the co-ordinations cardstock and I have used Medallion 7 to give some texture. Just to explain if you are not familiar with how to do this - (explaining as if you are using a Calibur) you need the base plate then the die, place the rubber mat on top and then the embossing plate.

The final one today is using the Floral Ribbon Threader and the Butterfly corner die which is simply stunning.
I have cut the main die in parchment and you may have seen me demonstrate this in the first hour of the launch show.

Thankyou again for popping in to have a peep,
See you soon
